A: madOS, (M.A.D. Team OS), is a ROM based on pure A.O.S.P. with extended capabilities and customizations made by or merge/adapted by M.A.D. Team.

Q: Which recovery should I use for this ROM?
A: Latest M.A.D. TWRP recovery for Apollo Lite
available here

Update to TWRP v: 3.1.1-0 Mandatory for 7.1.2:
available here

Q: Some translations are missing for my language, can I help?
A: Sure you can, please check our translations repo available here , you can either do a pull request, or if you don't know how to work with git, sent us the XML. Strings for your language ( Check Readme on repo).

Q: What's working ?
A: Check first Post for current status

Update for 7.1.1

Q: When I try to install the ROM it says "Error 7 symlink failed", what gives?
A: You need to unmount /system first on twrp

Q: After flashing TWRP says "No OS Installed?"
A: Ignore this message. If the ROM flash indicated as being successful, you can swipe to reboot and the OS should boot.

Q: Do i really need full wipes?
A: Yeah

Q: App "x" doesn't work, why?
A: Probably not compatible with Nougat yet, feedback is welcome

Q: Is the rom rooted?
A: NO, But you can easily root with SuperSU v2.76 onwards.
For 7.1.2: Only Latest SuperSU works

Q: Does xposed work?
A: As of now, there's no Xposed for N, so no

Q: Does busybox still works on Nougat?
A: yes

Q: AdAway no longer works on Nougat, what can I do?
A: Simply install busybox first, available from the Play Store, and it'll download hosts and work just fine then

Q: Data Connection does not work, why?
A: The ROM, already includes latest APNs, if you still have no active data connection, check your APN settings

Q: How is battery life with Nougat on the Jiayu?
A: It should be comparable to Marshmallow.
Update: We've already fixed several memory leaks and draining issues

Q: Does this build support Vulcan?
A: No. Vulcan does not provide support for MediaTek (yet?)

Q: Does doze work in this build?
A: Yes. You do not have to enable anything; it is active by default.

Q: Does this ROM supports Substratum ?
A: YES, latest rootless substratum is supported on madOS ;)

madOS: We are now an Official Substratum supported rom

Q: Does the ROM features disabling SIMs , On Settings SIM Options?

I had completely forgotten that there's no Xposed for Nougat yet... oh well, it's only a minor downgrade to the situation I had a few days ago (I only rooted and installed Xposed two days ago...).

Downloading and backing up stuff as we speak. Will report on how awesome this is, later.

Great work and many thanks! :)
